Allegations that USP Atlanta Doctor Sexually Abused Inmates

Last Thursday, Dr. Lewis Jackson, 30, appeared in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, where he was arraigned on charges of sexually abusing inmates at USP Atlanta:


According to United States Attorney Yates, the charges and other information presented in court, from January 2011 through July 2012, Jackson was a physician at the United States Penitentiary (USP) in Atlanta where he provided medical care to inmates in USP’s medical ward. The USP houses medium security male inmates and has a satellite camp for minimum security male inmates.
The indictment alleges that in October 2011, Jackson molested three inmates who were seeking medical treatment at the USP. In each case, Jackson tried to perform oral sex on the inmates during the course of their medical exams. In one case, Jackson also attempted to engage in anal sex with an inmate.[…]
Jackson was charged last week in the Superior Court of the District Columbia with three counts of sexually abusing another inmate in the District of Columbia Jail in 2008. According to that indictment, Jackson performed a series of sex acts on the inmate after he sought medical treatment while in jail. Jackson was on bond in that case at the time of his arrest in Atlanta. Trial in the D.C. case is set to begin on January 17, 2013.
